Hallmark of Discipleship
So take your Bible, if you will. And let's look at Matthew, chapter 10. I really believe that this may be the greatest section of scripture on the significance of discipleship. In the tenth chapter of Matthew, our Lord is sending out His 12 disciples. He's instructing them, and though their first effort will be short term and they'll come back, lick their wounds, to be sent out again after the Lord returns to heaven, this is a very important time. And He gives them basic lessons about discipleship.
